Our charming villa was built around 1920 and restored inside in 2006. It is originally divided into three apartments, one per floor, each with its own independent entrance. The two apartments on the upper floors are available for rent. The apartment on the ground floor is kept by the owners of the villa, a young couple (he is Italian and she is American). They spend most of their weekends there and they welcome you while leaving you completely independent. The villa also enjoys sun all day long. The view of the sunset above the lake is beautiful from the large surrounding garden.
Example of day spent in Veleso:: Spend your days sitting outside in the sun on a beautiful terrace surrounded by magnolia trees and pines of your own villa apartment above Lake Como, gazing at the gorgeous lakeside views. You can walk into the traditional village of Veleso, or take nice walks along the Altopiano del Tivano from where the view of the lake is breathtaking. The local market is 3 minutes walking distance from the villa. If you prefer to swim in the lake, you can either drive 8 km or take a bus that will pick & drop you off just in front of the house. Enjoy the town of Nesso, beautiful Bellagio, or take the ferries or water taxis to explore the villages around the lake. Como is famous for the silk and for the 18th century novel I Promessi Sposi. written by Manzoni. If you feel like, from the nearby hills you can reach Switzerland or visit the vibrating Milano.
Located on the shore of Lake Como, Veleso is a quiet village between Como and Bellagio at almost 800 meters above sea level. The village enjoys a postcard-perfect view of the lake. The public beach and marina are within easy distance by car or by bus. The village, 3 minutes walking distance, has a restaurant, grocery shops, a pharmacy, and a post office. Como and Bellagio (16 km away) are accessible for day trips. Lugano, in Switzerland (55 km away), is also within driving distance. The nearby village of Nesso includes an ancient church built in 1095, the fishing harbor of Pognana, waterfalls, and the ruins of a medieval castle.
The town of Como is elegant and charming. Here, the Villa Carlotta, an 18th century summer house, and the 14th century duomo should rate high on your itinerary. Popular resorts on Lake Como include Menaggio, Cernobbio, Bellaggio, Onno, Varenna, and Colico. Thanks to easy, enjoyable ferry access, the resorts make excellent day trips from the villa.
